John Kennedy interviews Peggy Seeger, part of the Seeger musical dynasty, and one of folk music’s most influential artists and songwriters. After an extensive period of travelling, Peggy arrived in London, where she met Ewan MacColl.

As Ewan’s muse, she was the inspiration behind one of the most enduring ballads of the twentieth century, ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’. Her memoir First Time Ever will be published on the 5th October 2017.
